Run for the RUH. Join our Bath Half Marathon team today!

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted just how amazing our NHS is. Our incredible hospital heroes have been working tirelessly every day to support patients, families, and each other throughout one of the most challenging times in the history.

Every day, RUH staff have put on their PPE and held us together. They have never stopped going the extra mile for us, and now it’s our turn. Sign up today to run for your local hospital.

Your miles will help us continue to support staff beyond the crisis and transform patient care where it’s needed most. Join our team and help make a real difference.

The outstanding staff at the RUH work hard day in and day out, to ensure us and our loved ones are given the very best care around. They’ve held us as babies, fixed our broken bones, been our shoulder to cry on in times of bad news, and held our hands in our final moments. The RUH have always been there to support us, and they’ll never stop.

Each year Team RUH are one of the largest local teams around, all running towards the same goal – to raise funds and help invest in extra-special equipment and facilities that make a real difference to everyone at the hospital, that goes above and beyond what standard NHS funding can afford.

So, if you’re thankful for the RUH, want us to help us continue our work by taking part in one of the best road races in the UK, and enjoy a challenge… then the Bath Half is for you!

We’ll be there on the day to give you all the support you need – before, during and after! We’re already warming up our vocal chords to make sure you get the loudest reception as you pass our cheering point.
